A SCRAPPY win keeps Wisbech hot on the heels of the league leaders.

Wisbech were made to work hard for victory against second-bottom Woodbridge.

Jack Hoyles' penalty kick 10 minutes from time was all that separated the two sides.

Coach Steve Drawbridge took the opportunity to rotate his squad and give several players a taste of first team action.

This result leaves Wisbech second in the table to Lowestoft and Yarmouth who they entertain in the last sixteen of the EDF Energy Junior Vase on February 7.

Wisbech are away to fourth-placed Newmarket in the league tomorrow.

n Wisbech seconds enjoyed a 37-7 Norfolk Merit Table victory at Thetford seconds.

In the last few matches Wisbech have been forced to play catch up, but this time they got on the front foot.

Tries from Raimus and Carl Ringwood put Wisbech 10-0 up with 10 minutes played.

Outstanding winger Paul Rodgers bagged a brace of tries, Raimus went on to score another and Dan Roberts looking assured in the centre also scored.

Sam Anderson, slotting in at scrum half, converted two and kicked a penalty.

Wisbech seconds are at home to Diss in the league tomorrow and kick off is at 2.15pm.
